Abstract

Hemangiopericytoma is a rate tumor arising from pericapillary cells or pericytes of Zimmerman, and can occur anywhere capillaries are found. We describe a patient with a meningeal hemangiopericytoma who was treated with primary surgical resection and experienced multiple bone metastases 20 years after the first treatment. This patient with multiple bone metastases was treated with multiple courses of irradiation and good palliation was achieved.

Zusammenfassung

Das Hämangioperizytom ist ein seltener Tumor, der seinen Ausgang von perikapillären Zellen oder Zimmermannschen Perizyten nimmt. Er kann überall dort entstehen, wo sich Kapillaren befinden. Wir berichten über einen Patienten mit meningealem Hämangioperizytom, der zunächst radikal operiert wurde und 20 Jahre nach der Primärbehandlung multiple Knochenmetastasen entwickelte. Der Patient wurde mit gutem palliativen Ergebnis mehrfach bestrahlt.
